I believe it is just south of Colbert, GA on Smithsonia Road. An estate previously owned by Kenny Rodgers.

Correct. Beaverdam Estates. Built by Mr. Rogers for he and his wife, who was from the Athens area. I don't think they lasted long.. Nice digs though.

Had an awesome ride today, it was just what my soul needed. Went out of Watkinsville and took all backroads to the tag location. It is Kenny Rogers' old digs and it is truly incredible. 973 acres with an equestrian facility and HIS OWN 18 HOLE GOLF COURSE! Crazy what the upkeep must be on this place.

Anyway, the new tag is just 10 milesish from here, at a park that Sherlock Holmes would definitely approve of.






After you grab the tag, grab a bite to eat here...it is mom & pop and really good.

Well I would if I could, having been to the area I know the place. This is from a great day spent out and about.

Ernbo is in the UAE? What's the story, I really missed it.

Hey Mike, how is the Pinlock?

Still hasn't got cold enough, for a good test. On our trip to Cherokee we did run into some rain but it never got as bad as the day I was having trouble seeing. Didin't fog though. So the jury is still out. I added one to my Wife's helmet as well and she likes it , she says it actually makes things clearer for her.
